If you needed any further evidence America has tuned this moron out, last week’s pitiful ratings for his anti-gun rant were one indicator, and now the ratings for his (mercifully) last State of the Union are in, and it’s not pretty.
President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address drew 31.3 million viewers across 12 networks, marking a new record low in viewership, according to Nielsen.
More than 21 million people watched on the “big four” broadcast networks. CBS led the broadcasters with 6.89 million viewers, followed by NBC with 6.62 million viewers, ABC with 5.02 million viewers, and Fox with 2.37 million.
On cable news, more than 9.5 million people tuned into the “big three” of Fox News, CNN and MSNBC, on average. Fox News, CNN and MSNBC were all up compared to last year’s address, with CNN averaging 3.49 million viewers, Fox News 3.47 million viewers, and MSNBC 2.52 million viewers. In the core adults 25-54 demo, CNN led cable news with 1.30 million viewers, Fox News with 753,000 viewers, and MSNBC with 604,000 viewers.
Last year, 31.7 million viewers watched the State of the Union address, on average, across 13 networks, including the Spanish-language networks, and smaller cable channels like Al Jazeera America and Fox Business. That was the lowest viewership of president Obama’s tenure. President George W. Bush’s final State of the Union address in 2008 averaged 37.5 million viewers, while the final State of the Union of Bill Clinton’s tenure averaged 31.5 million.
Historic! Translated, less than one in 10 Americans tuned in. He’s dull, he’s boring, he’s predictable and people just don’t care about him. And we’re going to elect a corrupt woman who’s even worse to replace him? We don’t think so. As evidence by the Iranians, nobody has any respect for him. He’s a failed president and he has to live with that.
